Storm Impacts BC Hydro Service
Prince George, B.C.- A powerful storm that ripped through the Cariboo this afternoon is being blamed for a power outage that is affecting much of Lac La Hache.
About 504 customers in that community and an area north of it are without power after a tree came down across BC Hydro lines.
Meantime, BC Hydro repair crews were to arrive in Takla Landing to start work to restore power to about 105 customers who have been without power since just before 10 last night. The cause of that outage remains under investigation. There is no immediate estimate on when power may be restored to that area.
